Kangana Ranaut comes out in support of Priyanka Chopra
Bollywood actress turned international icon, Priyanka Chopra found herself in the mid of a controversy, when opposed about a past tweet celebrating the Indian army’s attack on Pakistan. While there was much said and written about the actress defending her tweet and her views on the situation, despite being a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, not many in the Bollywood film industry came out in support of the star, until now. Actress Kangana Ranaut has risen in support of Priyanka and even defended her views over the controversy while admitting that is “not an easy choice.”
In an exclusive interaction with ETimes, Kangana said, “It’s not an easy choice to make… when you are stuck between your duty and your emotions, being a UNICEF goodwill ambassador sure you can’t limit your identity to one nation, but how many of us choose heart over mind every day?”
This comes after Pakistan’s Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari and many others wrote open letters and signed petitions to urge UNICEF to remove the Bollywood actress for her alleged “hypocrisy.”
Priyanka was slammed by pro-Pakistani supporters for cheering for the Indian military’s attack on Pakistan, post-Pulwama attack when tensions between the neighbours were at an all-time high.
